I highly recommend Doug Wildman and anxietycentre.com
I can't say enough positive things about the Anxiety Centre and my counselor, Doug Wildman. After having several anxiety attacks over a very long week, I searched the Internet and found the Anxiety Centre. I immediately became a member, and had an appointment to speak with Doug just a few days later.
The information in the Recovery Support area of the website is so helpful. I read and re-read the anxiety symptoms and explanations for the symptoms. This alone eased my mind. My level of anxiety decreased just in knowing that anxiety was causing these strange symptoms that I was having. I have used many of the strategies discussed at the website, and I ordered the relaxation cd, which was very helpful. Learning to recognize the anxiety for what it was (mine was constant), and learning to not respond with more fear, took some time. It can be done, it just takes time and practice!
The discussion forum was also helpful because it was good to see what resources and techniques were helping others. I still use these resources because I think that they are good for you whether you are experiencing anxiety or just everyday living.
My most dramatic improvement came from my counseling sessions with Doug. He is compassionate, caring, open-minded, a GREAT LISTENER, and can relate with experiences of his own. I have been able to work through many issues that go back to childhood, and I am more confident. I am so grateful to Doug for all of his help. I am a different person now.
I would highly recommend the Anxiety Centre to anyone who is experiencing any type of stress/anxiety/depression.
The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
